Years spent refining the collection, Gee has curated a selection of postage stamps from around the world.
The postage stamp, invented in England in 1840, revolutionised global communication. All nations quickly adopted the concept making it their own. As the first form of mass media graphic design, each stamp tells its own cultural narrative, celebrating everything from commerce and innovation to art and agriculture.
Gee spends hours searching for each stamp, often going through thousands before finding the one that will fit into the rest of the collection. The 100-year-old miniature hand engraved artwork is then enlarged and digitally revised by Gee, creating a fresh contemporary take on the original. Finally, the stamp is printed on 350gsm G. F. Smith card, cut out, and finished by hand.
Print runs are limited to 75 or 100 and available in 3 sizes. If you looking for a stamp from a specific country, please get in touch. Due to all works being made to order, we do not accept refunds, only exchanges. In which case, we ask the customer pays for delivery. Turnaround is currently two weeks. If you wish to receive the artwork sooner, express delivery is available, or free collection from our studio in Battersea is available at checkout.
